Sailor Moon Crystal: Infinity 7

IMG_2482

“Transformation” was a very satisfying Act for me.  What I love about Sailor Moon the anime & Sailor Moon the character is embodied in the speech she makes to stop the inners & outers from fighting.  We have the same goal, she pleads, so we’re all friends.  The power of love might be cliché, but I still thing it’s not most real thing the world has to offer.

We learn the mission of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto– their talismans, the Space Sword, Aqua Mirror, and Garnet Orb, resonate to awaken Sailor Saturn, who will bring about the end of the world.  Their talismans also resonate to give Sailor Moon the power to become Super Sailor Moon.  This is why they tell her their mission.  Super Sailor Moon is way powered-up with a new attack and Moon Crisis Make-Up!  The group seems to have taken to calling her Super Sailor Moon, though, and I find that a bit excessive…

Back to Sailor Saturn– she is revealed to be Hotaru.  Hotaru’s weak body will only heal if she is awakened as Sailor Saturn, but a swing of her Silence Glaive will bring abou the end of the world.  Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto have decided to kill her.  Sailor Moon is having none of this.  Chibiusa makes it her mission to save her friend, but when she gets there, Hotaru is not herself.

We see Hotaru struggle with what seems to be dissociative identity disorder earlier in the episode, but by the time Chibi Moon & the Senshi reach her, she is someone totally different.  She has grown tall and has long hair and serves Pharaoh 90 now.  She is Mistress 9, but you might now know that yet!  So hang in there, guys.

Thoughts?!

  1. I’ve always wondered why they just don’t take her Glaive away? I mean, if you knock the moon rod out of Sailor Moon’s hands she becomes pretty harmless.

  2. I really enjoyed this episode, and the fact that Saturn has the powers of both destruction and rebirth I find brilliant.
    Other than that, I’m excited for the new episode tomorrow, since it starts a five-part finale (the last five arcs of the manga really get intense).
    That, and we get our third version of “New Moon ni Koishite” with Momoiro Clover Z. * fangirls *
    This new season has completely blown the first two out of the water in my opinion. I can’t wait until it’s all done so not only we can move onto the Dream arc, but also to binge all of this as a movie. Perfect way to spend the summer!
